Hello folks,

I've been assigned at my job the task to develop (or figure out) a method for calculating Fatigue Stress based on the Number of Cycles an specific material is subjected to.

On my X-axis I have the number of cycles, which adds up to more than 30 millions, on the other hand in the Y-axis I have the Stress value that results from the application of N number of cycles.

I must do this by means of a logarithmic-linear interpolation. I've been searching the whole internet without a CLEAR method. Anyone any idea how to solve this?

Thanks!

In stress fatigue for materials, there is the S-N curve :

"plot of stress (S) against the number of cycles to failure (N), which
is known as an S-N curve".

There, the number of cycles is graphed on a logarithmic "X" axis:
